I love trying new main dishes. Once I select one, I get stumped for a complimentary side. Is there a way within allrecipes that has appropriate sides for a given recipe?

When looking a recipe page for main dish, I sometimes click on "related menus" over on the right side. There are sometimes great ideas there for side dishes and desserts served with similar main dishes.

There used to be "Serve with" suggestions, ages ago. You could choose rice, pasta, or vegetable, I think. I miss that feature! But people here on The Buzz are always willing to help.

Same here. I always try to a) check out the photo's people post to see what's on their plate (grin) and b) read reviews - a lot of times, people will put down what they served the recipe with. I always try to do that now as well.
